Some little things that make me happy!

I was searching Etsy....I know it’s addictive...for sea glass jewelry and found this precious angel pendant!

You can never have too much sea glass....or too many angels!

I bought this from Beth at Beach Glass Shop HERE ! I noticed that for this month she has a SALE going on AND free shipping!

She has some amazing jewelry in her shop!

I also got a sweet package from Marydon last week.

I won this fabric in her giveaway on Blushing Rose HERE ! I’m thinking of owls! Wouldn’t they be sweet in this pretty fabric?

I also got a beautiful card and photos from my friend, Pat.

I love angels, pearls and sea glass. I must check out this link as this charm is soooo pretty. Thanks for sharing.
Happy mail is the best.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Oh yes, I love happy mail. That angel is just so sweet. You'll do something wonderful with all the fabric. It's so nice to have actual pictures to hold in your hand. Lucky girl!

The angel pendant is precious and I'm sure you'll get many compliments on it. There are some interesting pieces in the fabric selection and won't it be fun seeing what you can make with it?

Marydon said...

So love those dish cloths, Diane. Wish we had some around here. Looks like a really fabulous shop to find goodies in. Yes, & the reason I love Cracker Barrel is for the old candies! Sounds like you had a fabulous trip ...

TY for mentioning your giveaway win from us. Anxious to see what you do with the fabrics ... wait until you see my hydrangea room & you'll know why I loved the pink hydrangea fabric so much.

Have a safe & beautiful holiday. Remember our troops & those who have joined Jesus!

TTFN ~
Huggers,
Marydon

I love happy mail, and it's certainly more fun then unhappy mail let's say...such as bills.

Pretty sea glass angel, and congrats on your winning!

Della said...

That pendant is precious, just like you! Congrats on winning the fabric :) The nautical fabric would make a cute pillow, or maybe a half apron, too.

Blog friends are the best! I know I have made some amazing friends that I wouldn't have made otherwise.

Your friend Pat's pictures are awesome! Did you see the size of that Maccaw??? WOW!

I do love getting happy mail, and sending it, too. I got some myself today! Have a beautiful day dear friend.

Boo-Bah AKA Iris said...

Yes I do love getting happy mail!! It's always so nice to receive a pretty card or letter, and sometimes an unexpected package.

I love seeing all the pretties on Etsy. So much creativity and talent out there.

Your card with the beautiful pink roses is gorgeous.

Hugs
Iris

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Oh, I just love the little sea glass angel! I'll have to visit the online shop. The fabric you won is lovely, too. Can't wait to see what you make with it. I've been seeing so many pretty things in blogland that everyone has made, that I'm going to have to dust off my sewing machine and see if it still works and start creating! That is, if I can tear myself away from the computer long enough!

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

I know, there are some amazing seaglass jewelry pieces to be found on Etsy! Oh my, the huge drinks these ladies are having..., yummmmmm.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I had to let you know I just bought Ashleigh a pair of earrings from the Beachglass Etsy for her birthday! Great deal too! Thanks!!!

Shannon @ Cozy Home Scenes said...

Your new pendant is very pretty Diane. I'm sure you'll find many times to wear it over the summer. Can't wait to see what you'll be making with the fabric. Looks like you've gotten some great stuff! Have a great weekend!

Karen Harvey Cox said...

Happy Mail, I like that! I hope that you are feeling better. That virus I had lasted for eight days. I feel good now, but it wasn't really that bad. It was a good excuse to stop running for a change and just sit still.

Have a great evening.
